Get ready, ladies and gentlemen, the day has finally arrived. The biggest wrestling event of the year is upon us. WWE WrestleMania 35 is set to go down, and we have the details on the final card and how to watch The Show of Shows this year!
Football has the Super Bowl. The movie industry has The Academy Awards. Fans of comic books and fantasy worlds have Comic-Con. And professional wrestling — and the WWE Universe — has WrestleMania. This year, we’re on WWE WrestleMania 35, and it is shaping up to be a doozy.
Since the first WrestleMania in 1985, the festivities have become much larger in scope. From a show at Madison Square Garden that could have bankrupted the company if it was a failure, all the way to the gigantic stadium shows of the past decade, WWE has built its entire year of storylines around the early spring spectacular.
Looking for the things to know this year? Where should we begin? The biggest news is that for the first time ever, a women’s match will serve as the main event of WrestleMania. The three superstars involved are among the biggest names and talent in the world, so it’s fitting they’ll have the opportunity to close the show.
What else does WWE WrestleMania 35 have in store? Well, there’s a championship match 11 years in the making. Another superstar is bidding farewell to the ring, while two others have put their careers on the line just to face each other. How about The Big Dog’s return from leukemia to compete on The Grandest Stage of Them All? Or the Women’s Tag Team Championship match pitting four talented teams against each other?
And that just scratches the surface! There’s so much more on what may well be the longest WrestleMania of all. So without further ado, here’s the official WWE WrestleMania 35 card, as per WWE’s official website:

Sixteen matches on the card, and still no sign of WrestleMania mainstays like The Undertaker or John Cena. Could either of the pair show up at The Show of Shows? We can ask WrestleMania host Alexa Bliss, but I doubt she’s talking.
How can you watch this marathon of a show? If you have an excess of disposable income or petty cash lying around, you can head to WWE WrestleMania 35 live at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday, April 7, 2019. Be prepared for the potentially chilly air, though!
But if you’re stuck halfway around the world, or don’t want to drop half a grand on a seat that’s partially obscured by the stage, you can watch the entire show on the WWE Network (subscription required). The main show is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, and will likely last until just past midnight local time — more than five hours after the show begins.
Don’t forget the Kickoff Show, either! That gets the show going at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, also on the WWE Network. The Kickoff Show is also available on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. And, as a special WrestleMania treat, the second hour of the Kickoff Show is airing live on the USA Network (beginning at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT).
